Eric Holder
Attorney General
FOXNEWSW 11/02/2014
Kurtz: Well, turns out Attorney General Eric Holder has some second thoughts about the administration's assault on the press. Capehart: What's the one decision you made that you wish you could do over again? Holder: I think about the subpoena to the Fox reporter, Rosen. I think that I could have been a little more careful in looking at the language that was contained in the filing that we made with the court. He was labeled as a co-conspirator. Kurtz: But it wasn't a subpoena. This was secret surveillance that involved reading James Rosen’s e-mail and that of his family without his knowledge. A subpoena you can go to court and oppose. Look, I'm glad that Holder is finally admitting that this was a flat out mistake to go after our own James Rosen. And the same applies to the surveillance of Associated Press reporters. Slapping that label, co-conspirator on a journalist who is doing his job was an atrocious lack of judgment. And I for one hope it never happens again.
